Heart Transplant Recipient Ran Marathon

An AGH (Allegheny General Hospital) Heart Transplant ran the Pittsburgh Marathon last Sunday. I thought about him today and I went back tonight and found his photograph. I took it just before Mile 20.

Absolutely incredible, isn’t it?

Wishing him all the best!

According to the article below from WTAE he had the transplant just 17 months ago

Mother’s Day Greetings

In the ongoing effort of cleaning up the third floor earlier this week, I found a stash of postcards and greeting cards, some handmade by my kids, written or scribbled upon and saved. Saved by me cause I couldn’t bear to pitch them. Even a dot matrix computer printer card, made by the kids for me. A folded page of Murphy the Airedale’s inky footprints before any of the grandkids arrived and then I found a card with the addition of “baby” when Anna was expected.

Numerous photographs, too.

Happy Mother’s Day greetings, a partial collection.

Found Rainbow at Dawn

A found rainbow at dawn.

Right on my polka dot sheets. I’ve put away the flannel ones until next winter.

This week’s challenge is your place in the world.

My comfortable bed seemed a good place to start the day, finding my place in the world.
